Ha’ Penny Snacks

  • Author: Tiffany
  • Total Time: 32 minutes
  • Yield: 8 - 10 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup (1 stick) butter* at room temperature
  • 10 oz. grated cheddar cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 package of dry onion soup mix**
  • 4 diced strips of crispy bacon
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  1. Mix butter and cheese
  2. Add flour, soup mix, then bacon – and blend
  3. Shape into rolls (It does not specify how many rolls***.)
  4. Wrap in wax paper (I think plastic wrap will be fine – like a cheeseball)
  5. Chill
  6. Slice balls into 1/4 inch-thick pieces.
  7. Place on ungreased sheet and bake at 375Β° for 10-12 minutes or until slightly browned.


*The recipe calls for margarine – but I suggest that you never, ever consume or substitute margarine in any recipe.Β  But, you do you. πŸ˜€

**Any time a recipe calls for half a package of dry onion soup mix – I always use the entire package.Β  Hasn’t hurt a recipe yet!

***This appears to be a bite-sized appetizer.Β  So I suggest forming several balls the are no taller/wider than a medium-sized potato chip, for easy handling.
